The Pittsburgh Steelers have lost another player to a suspension.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Steelers' running back Karlos Williams has been suspended 10 games for violating the NFL's policy for substances of abuse. This is Williams' second suspension of the season, as he was also suspended for the first four games of the season for another violation of that same policy.

Williams was signed to the Steelers' practice squad in October as a depth pickup. The second-year back had success with the Buffalo Bills as a rookie scoring nine total touchdowns.

However he came into camp overweight and was subsequently cut by the Bills after his first suspension was announced.

Wiliams had yet to start a game in this NFL season.
